There's no need to be fascinated by what's up other people's arses.

And it seems you have a very narrow view of the world, your comment on 'state sector (or among the Asian students)' speaks volumes...and don't use that shite of 'admittedly....'

Go back to your pad in London, reposition the mirror and grab hold of your head and give it a firm tug to remove it from up your arse. And while you are at it, book a flight back to America. One way.

interesting. I am hardly skinny though because I do a heck of a lot of swimming. Im 6ft2 and 79KG's..hardly skinny. I do have 9.5% body fat though, well after last nights beer and pizza has likely shot up.

Rugby is for folk who were too fat for football.

I'm same height as you but man-sized 103kg.

Rugby is for kids too clever to play to play football.

I think we can see why it is hard to make new friends in Dubai.

Just seen 7 pages of guys talking just about themselves.

Hard to find a more narcissistic town

Jealousy is a terrible thing.

Come bask in my gentle, but impressive, aura.
